An AI Enabled Quasi-Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring For Early Chemical and/or Biocontamination Detection
Train the Trainer
The “Train the Trainer” initiative, central to WP2, was designed to strengthen the expertise of local human resources. Through focused capacity-building efforts, we aimed to empower both male and female trainers to work seamlessly with project partners and deliver knowledge effectively. A key objective was to foster strong collaborations with partners like BDREN, MYREN, and LEARN under the Asi@Connect umbrella.
The program delved deep into providing participants with both theoretical and practical insights. Specifically, the training focused on time series analysis of water quality parameters and the intricacies of developing Machine Learning and Deep Learning models for water contamination predictions. Furthermore, the initiative was geared towards readying the software development team for the creation of an AIoT-powered application to measure and predict water quality, enhancing real-time monitoring capabilities.
This initiative was paramount in ensuring that the team could engage effectively, conduct research, analyze data, and contribute to technological advancements, all pivotal for the project’s overarching success.
